What’s Happening in Brighton and Hove & Surrounding - 14.07 - 28.07

15 Jul 2017 Posted by: Guest blogger


It’s July and time seems to be passing us by very quickly, the summer holidays are nearly upon us already! 

The events listings in this blog should help ease the stress of trying to find out what’s happening in your area. 

I hope you have enjoyed reading my previous blogs with lots of events happening to keep you all busy. Brighton certainly comes alive in the summer and our family have been getting out to enjoy it as much as possible! 

Last weekend we visited the Kite Festival at Stanmar Park and had a picnic. It was a great day for all. The kites were out in force setting a colourful scene in the bright clear blue sky.


The atmosphere was buzzing with lots of stalls to visit. Our favourite and most liked by my 3 year old nephew was the Owl enclosure. With a stunning array of different species, we had an opportunity to see and pet one up close. 

If you managed to get to this festival we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. 

Keep in touch with my local Facebook page too for more information and pictures.

The weather in the next few weeks is expected to stay warm and sunny. Whether you are going camping or getting out and about, it looks set for decent weather!

The annual ‘March of the Mermaids’ and ‘Patchfest’ Festivals are both on this weekend, Saturday 15th July

Join the mermaids on the parade starting at The Meeting Place Café where they will parade along Brighton Beach front from 3pm in their full colourful, glittery spectacular costumes. This is a sparkling event not to be missed!
